THREE TYPES OF TPU FILM SUPPLIER...
WHICH DO YOU HAVE?
There are three basic types of urethane film suppliers. One is the high volume, commodity manufacturer. They are good at extruding a few basic formulations with standard resins that fill certain market needs, relying on efficiency and volume to stay competitive.
Second are the "me too" companies who make the same basic products as the first but carve out market share through price and delivery.
The third type asks the market what it needs and then listens carefully. That's Argotec. We work closely with both customers and resin suppliers to create films specifically engineered to the exact needs of a customer's particular application. This approach may sound simple, but you would be surprised how often manufacturers fail to simply listen.

AT THE NEW ARGOTEC INNOVATION CENTER
Argotec is the driving technical force in today's polyurethane film industry. We have the experience, resources, and commitment to take TPU film where it has never gone before.
But we also realize that our success depends on our customers' success. Which is why we asked our customers and development partners what they needed. Their answer was clear:
"A partner willing to invest the time and resources to help make us successful."
PROBLEM SOLVERS SINCE DAY ONE
Since its start in 1988, co-founders Dick Barnes and Steve Wolkenbreit have differentiated Argotec by taking on seemingly impossible application challenges and not only providing solutions, but building strong customer partnerships in the process. The result has been new and innovative urethane film formulations, new applications, and entry into new and exciting markets.
As new films and applications have advanced from development to commercialization, Argotec has added the high-volume capacity and in-line inspection systems to support very large programs with world-class quality and competitive pricing.
200 YEARS OF COMBINED TECHNICAL EXPERIENCE
Argotec continues to invest in building a team of experts to drive the philosophy of providing our customers not merely with a product, but business-savvy solutions to their unique challenges. We have been successful in attracting the most experienced technical staff in the industry with well over 200 years combined experience in urethane film extrusion.
The company's ongoing investment in the industry is seen in the building of new plants in 1988 and 1999, making major additions to each in 2005 and 2007, and embarking on our largest and most aggressive expansion yet in 2008, which more than doubled again our square footage and capacity. And each addition has been reinforced with the most modern extrusion and quality systems on the planet.
Through all of this growth, Argotec has remained true to the original vision of the founders:
"Listen to the customer, stay focused on problem solving, and keep technical service as the number one priority."
The result is the new Argotec Innovation Center. Learn how you and the polyurethane film industry can benefit from this first-of-its-kind research & development facility.
